Elevate your cooking with DiSanto's delicious and versatile garlic paste, made using handpicked wild garlic and extra-virgin olive oil. Indispensable for cooking bruschetta, stews and barbecue meats, crema di aglio is an essential ingredient for all garlic lovers!

Garlic belongs to the same food family as onions, leeks and chives. It has been grown for culinary and medicinal purposes for thousands of years and is a staple ingredient of cuisines worldwide. In Italy, wild garlic (also known as bear's garlic) is harvested in spring and used to make pesto and other traditional dishes. The entire bulb can be used, or individual cloves can be peeled and chopped separately. DiSanto's garlic paste comprises wild garlic picked by hand and blended with extra-virgin olive oil, a teeny bit of salt, vinegar, and parsley. It's a brilliant shortcut for busy cooks. There's no need for peeling and mincing - store the jar in the fridge after opening and use it as needed. Half a teaspoon of garlic paste is approximately equivalent to one garlic clove.

DiSanto's garlic paste is genuinely potent and will fill your kitchen with the scent and flavours of the Italian countryside. Raw garlic packs an intense punch; it takes on a milder, sweeter taste when heated. Garlic paste is widely used in cooking and as a seasoning - not just for super-garlicky dishes such as chilli and garlic prawns or baba ganoush, but in more subtle ways - risotto and curries. This garlic paste can be used raw in aioli sauce, rouille, pesto and garlic butter.
